With the season’s change comes… wacky skin! If you’re feeling like your skin has been all out of sorts lately, it might be time for a good, ol’ fashioned reset. From dryness and peeling to acne or even redness, a regular face routine can really save your skin and bring it back to life.
Here’s your dose of skincare 101 to get your summer glow on.
When it comes to skincare, establishing a routine means finding staple essentials that work for your skin. Step one is to start by identifying your skin type. This includes understanding any skin concerns that you’d like to address (i.e., redness, dryness, oil control, etc.)
A friendly reminder: what works for your BFF may not work for you if you’ve got different skin types. The key here is to find a set of everyday basics that addresses your skin concerns and keeps your skin healthy and glowing.
Resident Tribe member Heather always recommends five daily basics: a cleanser, an exfoliant, a serum, a moisturizer, and an eye cream. Some products – like the moisturizer – you can use morning and night. But you’ll only use other basics like the serum, exfoliant, and eye cream at night time.
With most products, a little goes a long way – kinda like wasabi. You don’t need to go all out. A dime-sized dollop is usually all you need to get the maximum effects – especially if you’re diligent about your skincare prep routine.
So while it might be more than you might pay for the cheaper (and less-effective) drugstore alternative, one bottle of serum will typically last you for months.
It’s always a worthwhile investment to indulge in professional skin care services and facials. Licensed estheticians are like skincare gods. They get to know your skin and have the skills and tools to breathe in new life for dewy, baby-soft results.
If you’re just starting out, it can be a struggle to figure out where to even start. With skincare, you usually get what you pay for and a little investment goes a long way. Just remember: when in doubt, leave it to the professionals for expert guidance.
